Delhi's Tis Hazari court on Friday rejected the bail pleas of AAP MLAs Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal, arrested for allegedly assaulting chief secretary Anshu Prakash.

Both the legislators will remain in judicial custody for now.

Earlier today, the Delhi Police visited chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence to collect all evidences, including CCTV footage, in connection with the February 19 incident.  According to Delhi government spokesperson Arunodya Prakash, 60-70 policemen entered the chief minister's office. 

Reacting to the development, the Delhi chief minister requested the investigative authorities to probe judge Loya death case with same pace.

"A police team has been sent to the chief minister's residence for collecting all evidence, including CCTV footage, in connection with the alleged assault on the Delhi Chief Secretary," Additional DCP, North Delhi, Harinder Singh said. 

"CM house taken over by police. Huge number of police force enters CM house without any intimation. Police Raj kills democracy in Delhi. Police spread all over inside CM house. If this what they can to do an elected CM, think what they can with poor people!!!" Prakash wrote on Twitter. 

"There is minimum courtesy in democracy. Every citizen has rights under constitution. Is it an attempt to humiliate a CM who is working tirelessly for the poor and the last man of the society?" he tweeted.
